The Knights - February 24, 2013

The Knights have been friends of ours for years.  Doug and Joe go all the way back to college.  Now their oldest, Tiffany, is about to graduate college and Carson, their youngest, is a rising football star in high school.  Everyone came by today because Tiffany wanted some graduation portraits.  I insisted I also get five minutes to photograph the whole family including their adorable Maltese, Joey.  Dear sweet Joey has recently gone blind, but he still managed to have a great time with my two pups as well as pose for a few pics himself.

Emma's Bat Mitzvah - February 16, 2013

In the event business there is nothing better than referrals from past clients with whom I have enjoyed working.  Saturday's clients, the Sorkins, were friends with the Friedmans, a family whose son's bar mitzvah I photographed a few years ago and whose daughter's bat mitzvah is coming up next month. I cannot thank them enough for referring the Sorkins to me. The minute I met Jerry and Lisa and I knew that I wanted to work with them on their daughter, Emma's, event.    They are lovely, kind and fun folks and they really know how to throw a party.

And what a great event it was.   The party started the minute the guests arrived and went full force until the last song.  I am still not sure how anyone found the time to eat or sit down because the dance floor was packed the entire night.

Big congratulations to Emma, the star of the day, and to her lovely family who was a pleasure from day one.

Thanks, as always, to Matt Splain for his great second shooting and to the other vendors who helped make the night such a success.

Suzi's Baby Shower at Restaurant Nora - February 9, 2013

My good friend and fellow event industry gal, Suzi Molak, had the most wonderful baby shower today at Restaurant Nora.  Thrown by a few close friends of Suzi's in the lovely back room of one of my favorite restaurants - this was a perfect afternoon.   This was such a nice group of folks.  Thanks to the hosts and thanks to Suzi for bringing us all together.  Can't wait to meet your baby girl this spring.
